Tune of the Day: Gigue by J.S. Bach

from Cello Suite No. 2, transcribed for solo flute

This 3/8-time Gigue constitutes the last movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite in D minor for unaccompanied cello. It is a very agitated piece, characterized by angular rhythms and violent, unrelenting passions.
